Four Oaxaca police officers lost their jobs this week after crashing a patrol car while inebriated and then resisting arrest.
They belonged to the Auxiliary, Banking, Industrial and Commercial Police.
The officers were traveling in a patrol car when they struck a building on the Huajuapan-Puebla federal highway in the municipality of Huajuapan de León. They tried to flee the scene but were arrested by municipal police.
The Ministry of Public Security (SSP) announced that the four officers were immediately dismissed from their posts following the incident. Security Minister Heliodoro Díaz said there was “zero tolerance” for such behavior.
